Very Satisfied Client
Jeff Terrill was able to get 3 Order for Protections dismissed for me. This was a very stressful time for me and Jeff helped me get through it and win my case. His staff was always very considerate and helpful. I would highly recommend him for any issues requiring a attorney.

The best attorney in town!!!!
This man changed my life on a case with 6 charges and 4 were felonies and the other 2 were misdometers. I walked away with next to nothing but probation. I highly recommend him on any case out there. He will be honest and tell you upfront exactly what to do and how the cards will be delt and how you're going to play your hand. I will be hiring him again to get everything expunged since my years have passed in order to go back to court.

One of the best!
Mr. Terrill was running late for my first appt due to being held up in ct. After waiting a little under an hour, he made it worth my time by taking money off of his price. He was extremely informative and knowledgeable about my case. He was able to clear my record by working with the prosecuting atty w/in days of my initial appt. He called me the day he got notice of my acct to keep me informed! Overall, I am extremely impressed and very happy I found him (through a judge's recommendation, too!).
